    Hi ferrari chatters.
    I am wanting your help in finding out what Fiat parts are used on my Ferrari 308 QV. today I came across a warehouse full of new and used Fiat parts, this place once was a Fiat auto wreckers. The owner of the building wants to clear it out for possible sale of the building. All of these parts will basically be going to the scrap. when I looked in the door, first thing I saw was 2 brand new veglia clock mechanisms still in the box, he gave these to me and told me if there's anything else I need to take a look. What should I be looking for? I'm sure there are other parts that will fit onto my 308, your help is much appreciated and I only have about 1 day to find the parts I want before they go out.

    Seriously, if they are good parts they are valuable Ferrari or Fiat. Don’t let him wreck them. Sell them as a bulk package if you don’t want to be a parts seller. There are quite a few fiat parts on Ferrari’s and Dino’s.

    If you don't want to own them all, inform a Ferrari parts/service specialist in your area and get them to buy the whole lot and they can sift through what is there.

    At least save all the NOS stuff, like those switches. Doesn't matter if it is for a Fiat or Ferrari.

    There is also a restoration shop west of Chicago, in Barrington Illinois, if selling and shipping any of the stash to the US is a consideration.

    Wow!!! Lucky guy, I would keep them all and sell with time.

    Good luck and best from Spain.

    Did you look in any of the cross-reference threads here such as the sticky at the top ? Probably others listed there already

    Back to the OP - there are several Australian Fiat shops that would be interested in this. I have a friend in Perth who would probably love to have a look at these and take them off your hands. I'll send you a PM

    Thanks for all the feedback people.
    Had a chat to the owner and he's getting the fiat club to come around and also a fiat specialist to sift through it as it goes out the door. So at least most of the really hard to get stuff will be saved. Its going to take more than a few days to clear this shed so I will call in and take another look. Im not that interested in buying it all, but im sure the Fiat clubs eyes will open wide and do the right thing with it.
    Thanks for the help on all the parts for my 308 qv. I managed to find ....
    2 new veglia clocks
    About 10 full sets of veglia instrument panels with clocks in.
    2 auxillary air valves
    4 indicator lenses
    Electric window motors
    Box of new break light switches.

    (Not bad for a dozen corona's)

    Im sure many other parts were there, but I had no idea what they looked like etc.

    And I have some more parts to look for when im back. (For the 308)
    If you think of any other parts that fit a 308, please let me know.
    Cheers.
